At the Maths Society we value positive learning experiences.
We believe that pupils will achieve more with a positive attitude towards learning and when they are given the opportunity to be inquisitive and experiment in a safe, patient learning environment. We love teaching, we believe that this passion translates to happy, healthy learners.
Safeguarding at the Maths Society
We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying the/our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems. Have a look at our Safeguarding Policy below for further information.
Fees and Timings
We strongly believe in fair and transparent pricing that reflects excellent value for money. We appreciate that private tuition can be a significant financial commitment to any parent; therefore the quality of the service we provide, we promise shall always be second to none. We have also maintained the same fees for the last three years.

We use Google Classrooms and below is all the information you need to get you started.
What is Google Classrooms?
This is a resource we are investing in to benefit our pupils. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions and receive private teacher feedback and grades. Google classroom allows teachers to send work e.g., powerpoint presentations, videos or word documents and pupils to submit homework.

Google Classroom Login Instructions
Google Classroom is best used while running the Google Chrome web browser.
You will need a Gmail account - this can be in your own name or your parents. DO NOT use your school issued email or gmail account.
We recommend the child has his/her personal Gmail account.
Action > email us your gmail address asap for the invite. This is the account that will receive all Homework emails.
How do you set up Google Classroom?
You will receive an email invite from The Maths Society.
To join you must have a gmail account. You cannot join with a hotmail, yahoo or any other account. Please register a Gmail account if you do not have one and share it with us so we can send you an invite. Each child in the family should have a separate Gmail account.
Click on Join in the email invite.
You will be directed to classroom.google.com, where you can log in (use a personal Gmail account, not school) to access the class (or classes).
Each class is private to the people the teacher has personally invited, including the students enrolled in that class and other teachers. Once you have joined a class, you can use all the features the teacher has enabled for that class, including class schedules, assignments, announcements, and submission.
Can you use Google Classroom at home?
You access Google Classroom from anywhere, including your phones, once you download the Google Classroom app.
Homework is set every week and is compulsory, no ifs or buts.
It is set at the end of the class and they have to write it in their books (many do not).
It must be completed to the best of their ability.
It must be submitted by the deadline for review by the teachers.
We also upload the homework in Google Classrooms - under Classwork > Assignments.
It is also uploaded here with video tutorials. Watching the video tutorial is mandatory.
How to submit work?
Watch this quick guide https://youtu.be/u2e8S413rPU
We suggest you use Google docs to write up your English work - it's easy to submit, no pictures to take and also easy for the teacher to read and mark.
For Maths and Science you can submit jpegs of your work which you would have done in your notebooks.
Parents Role - Very Important
Homework is one area where parents can play a very active and encouraging part in their child's education.
Get involved - take a genuine interest in their homework. It takes less than 10 mins a day to get them started.
Ensure the HW is completed to a high standard - Please check to ensure the work is completed, do not take their word for it. Do not excuse incomplete work.
Remove all distractions - no phones, no computers, unless when actually required for the work. Pupils tend to type the question into Google and copy the answer down - that's not learning. Maths homework will require showing workings out, you cannot copy the answers from the back of the book.
Homework Routines - Your child should get in the habit of doing homework at the same time every day. The time may vary depending on the individual child.
Let them make mistakes - It’s OK for answers to be wrong. Telling your child the right answer and getting them to just write it down means that the teacher is none the wiser about which bits they are struggling with and which they excel at.
